Access and excess are two words that cause problems even for native speakers. Access means the right of entry, a way of entering. It can be used as noun and as a verb. How do I gain entry to the system? How do I get access to this computer system? This password will let you enter the system. This password will give you access. Now, access has the stress on the first syllable - access. But, excess has the accent on the second syllable. The word stress falls on -cess - excess. Excess is either a noun or an adjective. It means too much of something.
